Lawal's story

Lawal is a Babban Gona maize farmer from Kinkiba Village. He is a hardworking married man with a child and lives in a mud house with his family. He hopes his child grows up to be an engineer.

In the past, his family was only able to eat two meals a day despite working several hours on the farm. As a Babban Gona member Lawal now has access to good seeds, fertilizers, herbicides and other quality inputs that will help him optimize his farm and attain yields up to 3.5 metric tons per hectare; 2.3 times the national average in Nigeria and increase his income earnings up to 3.5 times the national average. With this increase in yield, he is now able to ensure that his family will never go hungry again.

This season, Lawal will use the income he makes from his maize sales to pay his child's school fees. Lawal’s greatest memory as a Babban Gona farmer is harvest advice. He is confident that with Babban Gona his future is secure and that he will have many more great memories and amazing accomplishments.
